King says national unity key to success of country

By ELIZABETH LOOI

KUALA LUMPUR: NATIONAL unity is the key to the success of the country and society, said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.
He said without the people’s unity, the country’s achievements, along with the prosperity that the people had built together, would be shattered.

“Without unity and harmony among the people, this beloved country of ours will be divided and eventually destroyed by instigations and feelings of hatred,” the King said in his first royal address to the first meeting of the fourth term of 11th Parliament.

Earlier, the King arrived with Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah at about 10am and inspected the 107 Guards of Honour. A 21-gun salute was fired. The ceremony was witnessed by Cabinet Ministers, MPs, Ambassadors and High Commissioners.

In calling for unity, the King said discussions and the exchanging of views were normal in today’s era of information and communication technology.
He said various opinions on the future direction and identity of the country were voiced.

He said, however, the Government hoped that Malaysians would discuss matters in a peaceful, calm and discerning manner.
“We believe that each and every Malaysian is united in their love for this country and does not wish to live in a society where extremism, disunity and racial intolerance is prevalent,” he said, adding that it was the responsibility of every Malaysian to maintain public order.

The King also said this year was a special year for the country despite several setbacks by the calamities of last year, such as the floods that cost about RM1.5bil.

He said this was because the country would be celebrating its 50th anniversary of independence. He hoped that the younger generation would appreciate the country’s history and remember the founding fathers who had fought for the nation’s independence.

The King however hoped Malaysians would continue to work hard and not be complacent. “Our Government will not rest on its laurels with the success achieved thus far and would continue to pursue excellence in all fields,” he said.
Other issues which the King spoke on included the Ninth Malaysia Plan and the Third Industrial Master Plan that were launched last year, economy, human capital and efficiency, agriculture, education, gender equality, eradication of hardcore poverty by 2010, better living standards, sports and the importance of the nation’s heritage.

The royal address also included improvement in the public delivery system, monitoring of Government programmes and anti-graft actions.
